Shine On, Syd – A Tribute to Syd Barrett

Syd Barrett & Pink Floyd – Shine On, Syd [2006]

Shine On Syd

With Syd Barrett’s passing on the 7th July 2006, I decided to compile my own virtual collection (will fit on a single CD, I think) in honour of his music and influence. I included Pink Floyd songs that do not feature Syd’s playing, but that are definitely about him. I made a cover to look like an old cassette as if this really was a mixtape. And I thought Syd would appreciate looking at the world from a different angle.
